Quagga mussel reached a Slovak stretch of the Danube river

In October 18, 2013, I found in a littoral debris of the water works' reservoir on the Danube river, near the town of Hamuliakovo (coordinates 48.032932,17.247419), Slovak Republic, 126 young live individuals of the quagga mussel [Dreissena rostriformis bugensis (Andrusov, 1897)].
